Avocado forum in Bundaberg will showcase export opportunities

The city of Bundaberg has been chosen as the location to host a forum which will discuss opportunities to boost avocado exportation with the national crop forecast to double by 2026.

This year, so far, Australian avocado exports have increased by 190 per cent when compared to the pre-Covid export volume. By 2026, Australia’s production is expected to reach 170,000t, which will be more than double the production in 2020-21.

In order to support the industry in growing the export sector, Avocadoes Australia will hold the CQ Avocado Export Regional Forum at Rowers on the River next month. The Bundaberg Region was chosen to host the event in order to target the more than 70 local and surrounding Central Queensland growers, packers and exporters.

According to Avocados Australia’s CEO John Tyas, the aim is to have CQ industry representatives to work together to build the Australian avocado export sector: “Australian growers can no longer rely on the domestic market alone and we know there are good opportunities to grow existing and new markets, particularly in Asia.”

The Central Queensland area -which is one of eight avocado growing regions in Australia- features more than 70 growers, packers and exporters who harvested and packed around 17,100 tons of avocados in the last financial year.
